The live-action revamp of vamps continues! Yesterday, Disney dropped the above poster for their upcoming Cruella, which reveals the origins of the villainess of 101 Dalmatians. Emma Stone stars as a punk diva who loves fashion and presumably hates puppies.
The fierce style of this Craig Gillespie-directed prequel has been flaunted for a while. However, the newly released trailer is our first look at Stone in action.
Here’s the official plot synopsis from Disney:
Academy Award® winner Emma Stone (La La Land) stars in Disney’s Cruella, an all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious - and notoriously fashionable - villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. Cruella, which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by two-time Oscar® winner Emma Thompson (Howards End, Sense & Sensibility). But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella.
Cruella will be releasing May 28.
